Duplantis was victorious in the 2018 European Championships, where he won with a clearance of 6.05 meters, setting a world leading mark, and a new world junior record, in the outdoor track and field.

He also reigned supreme at the 2018 World Junior Championships, which he won with a clearance of 5.82 meters, thus setting a new championship record.

For all his athletic accomplishments this year, Duplantis was named the “All-USA Track and Field Athlete of the Year,” and rightfully so.

Hopefully, the following athletic season in 2019, will be equally rewarding and impressive for Mondo Duplantis. Most incredible is the fact that Duplantis is only 18 years old, so his future in the sport seems very bright and promising.
